As for the elimination challenge, what can I say? You won't see any dogs coming into my salon anytime soon! I've never actually groomed a dog before, but if I ever have the opportunity, I'll probably do something crazy, like a Mohawk. I think we would have seen some more extremes if the contestants only had to style the dogs. It would have allowed them more time. But when they had to split their focus between their dogs and their human clients, everyone's attention shifted. They ended up going the more familiar route on the dogs, which wasn't very imaginative. Dogs don't really let you show off your talent, but at least they can't complain if they don't like your work.
